    Here are my new chicks! They are supposedly New Hampshire Reds and Golden Comets and all hens from the labeled bins at TSC, Ohio. Anyone see anything they think is different, PLEASE let me know!

    This is the biggest chick and we were hoping she is a Golden Comet?

    Here are half of the New Hampshire Reds girls, what do you think?

    Here are the other half of the New Hampshire Reds girls, even with the barred feathers that 2 of them have??

    So the little ones I got on 3/18 and they are supposed to be the Golden Comet girls. I put one each of the others in the box, so 'biggie chick', the buff colored and the barred one are both from the other two pics of the NHR's above. You can see the size differences. They are each about a week apart in the shipments. Big chick weighs in at 8 oz now and the medium sized ones are between 4.5-5.0 ounces.

    So is this usual for the NHR to come out in different feather patterns? Haven't found out YET what hatchery they came from to TSC.

    Having LOADS of fun with them and so far they are all doing well! 18 in all. Boy am I in TROUBLE!![​IMG]
